The McClure Gallery in Montreal,Canada, is pleased to feature the recent paintings of Dennis Ekstedt in his exhibition "Megalopolis". Included are approximately fifteen works on canvas which
confront the viewer with evocative images of glimmering illuminated cities. While not
landscapes so much as earthscapes, the works negotiate nonetheless landscape’s
traditional quest to identify humanity’s relationship to nature. Dennis Ekstedt's paintings
investigate and celebrate, through a palpating beauty, a contemporary version
of that query. The works are visionary as they undertake to establish how we might
feel and see ourselves in a world where the terms of co-habitation must necessarily
be redefined, where the natural and the virtual, the human and the sprawling nervous
systems of our invented technologies co-exist.
